For those of you in the yoga class or on the waiting list, we have moved the Tuesday class to Monday. The time is still 8:15-9:15 A.M. We had a great week last week not just because yoga is so great but especially because we received a $1,000 award from the Pedernales Electric Coop’s Light the Way grant program. These wonderful folks give money back to the communities each year by supporting senior centers, libraries, EMTs, and volunteer firefighters. If you know someone who works for the Coop, be sure to tell them how grateful we are for their support.NEW ARRIVALS: (All quotes are from publishers’ summaries)AUDIOBOOKS:Sandcastles by Luanne Rice (CD F RIC)Southern Lights by Danielle Steel (CD F STE)Critical by Robin Cook (CD F COO)FICTION:Left for Dead by J.
